Fox News host Harris Faulkner argued on Monday that President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen is no longer “credible” after he suggested that he would cooperate with investigators.

In an interview with ABC News, Cohen seemed to back off his earlier claim that he is willing to “take a bullet” for the president.

“My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will,” Cohen told the network. “I put family and country first.”

During a segment about Cohen on the Fox News program Outnumbered, co-host Abby Huntsman concluded that Cohen “is willing to turn [on Trump] if he has to.”

“Who knows how this plays out,” Huntsman remarked. “But I will say, how he answers the questions, if you read it carefully, everything he said actually goes against the way the president has spoken about the FBI and about this Russian meddling.”

But Faulkner argued that Cohen could no longer be seen as “credible” if he becomes a witness for the prosecution.

“Where we are right now is if you know something that is so important, and yet, he is willing to talk to the president but seemingly going against him, what does that say about this person as a witness?” she opined. “It becomes difficult to see him credible at this point. I don’t know what he knows, but based on the way he is acting.”
